A Boy and His Hair

He would have gone to school like this.
And it probably would have been fine.
I've seen lots of kids at school
with hair that looked nappier than that.

Don't misunderstand.
He goes to school pretty much every day
without combing his hair.
But this time it was a little too much for me.

He considers it torture to have his hair combed.
Or cut.
Remember this?
He looks so cute after the cut, doesn't he?
He badly needs a haircut.
Badly.

I told him I was going to take him
to the gal that cuts my hair.
You would have thought
I was making him paint his nails pink.
But it hasn't happened yet.
I keep putting it off.
No reason.
Other than I'm good at putting things off.

I wonder how long he would let it get.
If he had a choice.
Which he doesn't.
Cuz I'm the parent.

It always seems like young boys do this....I'm waiting on the day when our little guy does that to me. It's nice right now because when he needs a haircut, he gets one...without whining. But, I know that won't last forever.

Hahaha! Love it!

When my boys' hair gets like that I just start putting gel in it every morning and making it look "intentional."
